Survey: A Majority Of Americans Say They Can Change A Flat Tire

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- If you were driving and heard that dreaded "thump, thump, thump", would you know how to change your own tire?

A recent survey by Cooper Tires shows that 74 percent of Americans say they can indeed change a tire.

That's good news seeing 81 percent of those surveyed said they'd had a flat tire at some point.

The survey also found there is really no generation gap. Younger Americans were, in fact, more likely to say they know how to change a tire than older Americans.
